nef are a think tank that looks at economy, society and environment and looks to develop new ways of integrating economy, society and environment.  The new-old word, ‘wellbeing’, has been the subject of one of their reports.  The report has specifically looked at wellbeing in the workplace and is available at here but their focus is to make our working lives a fulfilling experience.  Since we spend so much of our lives at work this is more important than ever!  Their key points;

Improving well-being at work requires a more rounded approach that focusses on helping employees to:

  • Strengthen their personal resources
  • Flourish and take pride in their roles within the organisational system
  • Function to the best of their abilities, both as individuals and in collaboration with their colleagues
  • Have a positive overall experience of work

It’s and interesting study because attempts to measure wellbeing in a way that is relevant to us all.  To what extent do you feel your your workplace encourages your own wellbeing?  Let me know
